I got this news in my inbox last night and it's definitely interesting because I was just eyeing a display of these products at CVS and wondering about them. The L’Oréal Paris Youth Code collection has been given the Good Housekeeping Seal, after evaluation by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. It's kind of a big deal, since the honor (which will be revealed in the April issue of the magazine) means that they've found Youth Code to deliver breakthrough anti-aging technology and cutting edge gene science. Interesting, right? Especially because you can most likely find it on sale at your local drugstore chain if you do a little research (I just got a 20% off my entire purchase coupon for CVS, so it was all perfect timing for me). Here's a little scientific info on the brand:
Backed by 10 years of gene research through a partnership between L’Oréal Paris and the St. Louis Hospital in Paris, the Youth Code skincare collection is specially formulated with GenActiv TECHNOLOGY™ to target signs of aging including sagging features, laugh lines, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. The breakthrough technology is specially formulated with Biolysat, Adenosine and enhanced with peptides that help make the skin act faster and younger. Biolysat, known as a good bacteria, works to activate the repair gene on the epidermis level and tells the genes to act faster in the recovery process. Adenosine, a molecule that naturally exists in skin’s DNA and is essential to proper cell functioning, acts as an anti-wrinkle ingredient stimulating DNA and protein synthesis while producing collagen. The powerful combination of these ingredients leaves skin feeling luminous, smooth, and hydrated.
I'm going to try the products out, so I'll keep you guys posted about my results. Maybe I'll wind up looking 17 again!
